David Singer wins the 2007 Caesars Palace Classic
David Singer made his way through a star-studded final table to win the 2007 Caesars Palace Classic and $1 million in prize money.
When the final-table action started, Singer was in the middle of the field with $304,000 in his stack, compared to chip leader Pham who sat with $913,000 in front of him.
Singer built up his stack methodically, but wasn't responsible for any eliminations until he busted Scott Fischman in third place, in a spectacular hand.
The betting had been hard on all streets, and finally the players were all-in with the board showing Kd-6c-5c-Ad-5h. Fischman flipped over Ac-8c for top pair and a busted flush draw, but was beaten by Singer who showed As-6d for two pair.
After that huge pot, Singer had a solid lead going into the heads-up match against Pham, but the final duel turned out to be extremely tough, lasting more than two hours with over 100 hands played.
There was, however, not a single double-up or all-in situation until Singer eliminated Pham on a bad beat in the very last hand of the Classic.
Pham moved all-in pre-flop holding K-K, and Singer called with A-9. Singer caught a straight on the river to win the title and $1 million. Runner-up Pham received $480,167 for his efforts.
